I am 37 years old and ever since I was very young I have struggled with seizures. I've had seizures from 18 months to age 12 then at about age 20 my seizures started again. I was diagnosed with leukodystrophy wich is a nerve and brain disorder that is a deterioration of nerve tissue. It is a progressive disease that will eventually end my life. I have how ever found a way to help me deal with the struggles that I have with my seizures. I have recently had a surgery that has helped me better control my seizures, and given me time to spend with my family. I have a VNS implant to help control my epileptic attacks, before VNS I had 5-6 seizures a day, now I only have 3-4 seizures a week witch is a major improvement.
